Todoist is Now Available on GNU/Linux

Todoist - Task and Project App
Written by Divine Okoi

FossMint has a good list of unique-style quality organization applications with titles such as Copyu, Takswarrior, and Zenkit ToDo but there is one app that has been far away from the reach of Linux users and we are excited to announce that it is finally available for users across the GNU/Linux platform.

Todoist is a task and project management app designed to enable users to reliably keep track of their tasks as well as to arrange, analyze, plan, and collaborate on projects in an easy manner.

Until the company released an electron wrapper version that can run on Linux platforms, Todoist was not available to most of the open-source enthusiasts. The good thing is that now that it is available as an Electron app, so are all the features! What is also cool is its ability to work offline so users can take it wherever they go in their pockets or rucksacks.

As a freemium productivity app, you will find working Todoist a breeze because of its sleek ad and clutter-free UI. The free plan allows as many as up to 5 people per project for a total of 8 projects.

Features in Todoist

  • Freemium app with a 30-day free trial for the premium version.
  • Colourful, organized, minimalist user interface.
  • Available on macOS, Linux, Windows, Android, iOS.
  • Set reminders and recurring tasks.
  • Built-in calendar for making plans.
  • Supports notifications.
  • Supports themes, task views, code snippets.
  • Productivity visualizations and activity logs.
  • Support team collaboration.
  • Integration support for Dropbox, Zapier, IFTTT, etc.

In the premium version which costs $4 per month and $3 per month when billed annually, Todoist features activity logs, productivity visualizations, labels & filters, automatic backups, tailored task management, custom filters, and up to 300 projects with as many as 25 people per project.

The Business version geared towards teams features up to 500 projects per user with as many as 50 people per project. Coupled with all the features in the premium plan, it offers a team inbox, admin & member roles, team billing, and priority support. It costs $6 per month and $5 per month when billed annually.

If you’re in education or are non-profit, Todoist has significant discounts for eligible educators, students, and nonprofit organizations.

Which productivity applications do you use, especially to organize your ToDos and keep track of projects? Todoist is very much reminiscent of Notion, one of the 11 Best Cross-Platform Note-Taking Apps. What’s your take on this matter? Are you excited that Todoist is finally available to all of us?
